short description:

Ferrous Sulphate Hephydrate: Green vitriol, FeSO4.7H20, has been known since the thirteenth century ; it crystallizes from solutions of iron or iron bases in dilute sulphuric acid. The heptahydrate forms green monoclinic crystals of density 1·88, very soluble in water (296 g litre-1 FeS04 at 25°C). By precipitating the aqueous solution with ethanol, heating the heptahydrate to 140° in vacuo or by crystallizing it from 50 % sulphuric acid, the white monohydrate is obtained. This can be further dehydrated to the white, amorphous FeSO4 by heating to 300° in a current of hydrogen. At red heat the sulphate decomposes : 2FeS04 -> Fe203+S02+S03 A tetrahydrate, FeS04.4H20, crystallizes from aqueous solutions above 56°.

Applications of Ferrous Sulphate Hephydrate

1.Nutritional supplements (iron enhancer); color former of fruit and vegetable; for example, the salted product used together with dried alum in eggplant can form stable complex salt with its pigment to prevent the discoloration caused by organic acids. However, it should be noted, for example, it will turn into black ink upon excess amount of iron. When the amount of alum is high, the meat of the pickled eggplant meat will become excessively solid. Formulation example: long eggplant 300 kg; edible salt 40kg; ferrous sulfate 100g; dried alum 500g. It can still be used as the color forming agent of black beans, sugar boiled beans and kelp. Food containing tannins, in order to avoid of causing blackening, should not be used. It can also be used for sterilization, deodorization and very weakly bactericidal.
2.Legumes contained cryptochromic pigment is colorless upon reduction state while being oxidized into black upon oxidation in alkaline condition. Taking advantage of the reduction property of ferrous sulfate can achieve the purpose of color protection with the usage amount of 0.02% to 0.03%.
3.If is used for the manufacturing of iron salt, iron oxide pigments, mordant, purifying agent, preservatives, disinfectants and medicine for anti-anemia drugs.
4.Ferrous sulfate (FeSO4) is also known as iron sulfate or iron vitriol. It is used in the production of various chemicals, such as sulfur dioxide and sulfuric acid.
5.Ferrous Sulfate is a nutrient and dietary supplement that is a source of iron. it is a white to grayish odorless powder. ferrous sulfate hep- tahydrate contains approximately 20% iron, while ferrous sulfate dried contains approximately 32% iron. it dissolves slowly in water and has high bioavailability. it can cause discoloration and rancidity. it is used for fortification of baking mixes. in the encapsulated form it does not react with lipids in cereal flours. it is used in infant foods, cereals, and pasta products.
6.Iron Supplement.
